Hornchurch match OFF

More frustration for Urchins

Hornchurch’s Ryman Premier Division clash with Margate tonight has been postponed.

The Bridge Avenue pitch failed to pass a 1pm inspection, causing more frustration for manager Jimmy McFarlane and his players.

Urchins have not played for 17 days, since Lewis Smith’s injury-time goal clinched a 1-0 win over East Thurrock.

They saw matches against Hastings and Carshalton fall victim to frozen pitches over the past two weekends and milder temperatures in recent days has left their pitch waterlogged.
